^ Some coaches or teams provide a good atmosphere that could help a guy like Beasley become a better person and get his personal life on track.

No doubt he's got a lot of talent, but when his personal behavior overshadows or affects his playing, it makes it hard for a team to take a chance on him.

I think Phil Jackson is/was one of the few coaches that could get through to a guy like that. I can't imagine LA without Phil has the right atmosphere, what with all the negativity we saw with the Howard departure. Add to that the media spotlight.

I wouldn't mind Beasley going to Chicago, but with the way the fanbase & media were capable of treating Derek Rose throughout the end of last season, I'm not sure it would be a good fit either.
